comments from Gabriella:

A hand lettered floral Birthday Card for a woman, based on a two colour screen print I made of a bird flying across a garden over a table with flowers on. The lettering reads "It's your Birthday..." on the front and "...hope it is as wonderful as you are!" inside in the same hand rendered lettering.

card copy (front):

It's your birthday

card copy (inside):

..hope it is as wonderful as you are!

I asked my question in a comment but : as this is a red and pink design do you think the blue text works ( with a touch of dark pink in the dots and comma of the text) and also should I change the inside text to grey or will it not matter for voting? I have no idea if minted use colour inside cards or not.. probably not!? Thank you :)

I'm so glad it was helpful! :) I think the additional blue in the vase ties it all together. I can't tell if this is a "critique" post or a "poll" post, but if it's not a poll, you could post the two designs into a poll and see which gets the most votes to help you decide.

Do you think the pale blue text works? and could it be blue inside or is text always grey or black inside minted cards? (Newbie here!)

Maybe add some blue highlights in the illustration?
